Yep. That’s enough now! There’s fast moving cloud going in all directions, the gusts are getting stronger and stronger, the noise of the wind obscuring our voices even though we’re right next to each other. We’re trying to clamber up steep rocky outcrops with sticks and full backpacks, the light is dingy and I’m being blown over against the foliage by the force of the wind. We’ve got no phone reception, and we’re three days walk from civilisation. Lets say, I’m not sure I’m *as keen* on this anymore. Maybe it’s time to go down yeh?…
Actually the scream above is for illustrative purposes only :) There was no screaming or stressing, in fact, I was pretty calm given the situation. But sometimes it’s wise to know when you’re out of your depth eh. And when the wind starts to ramp up that heavy, it’s time to pack up the lunch box and set a course for a duvet :)
I could tell by Nicky’s voice that she’d had enough, so didn’t try to change her mind. Shame because we were almost at the top and would soon be on our way back down to around the 1000m mark and walking into the wind. So defeated we made a retreat back the way we came..
